The White Barn Inn & Spa

The White Barn Inn & Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This renowned inn is one of the premier luxury options in Maine, and offers a true boutique experience in charming Kennebunk. It is housed in a historic building, and so its 26 rooms vary greatly in size. However, they all feature flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, and classic, elegant decor. The much-acclaimed restaurant serves outstanding (and pricey) seasonal cuisine in an 1820s restored barn, and the spa is arguably one of the best in the region. The waterfront cottages are quite a trek from the main building, so make sure you book a guestroom instead if you want to be closer to the property’s great amenities.
Bar Harbor Hotel - Bluenose Inn

Bar Harbor Hotel - Bluenose Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This upper-middle-range hotel is one of the pricier options in Bar Harbor, and one of the only options with expansive views of Frenchman Bay. Rooms have slightly fussy and very dated traditional style (expect lots of floral prints, and wall-to-wall red carpeting), but almost all of them have at least a partial view of the water, and many have fireplaces. Guests can also take in the views over breakfast or dinner at the Looking Glass Restaurant, enjoy piano music in the evenings, or drive three minutes to Downtown Bar Harbor for more dining and entertainment options. Property features include a small spa as well as indoor and outdoor pools. Bar Harbor Inn is a comparable option with even better views, but it's often a tad more expensive.
James Place Inn

James Place Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The intimate James Place Inn offers seven rooms on a quiet street near central Freeport and local shopping. The polished rooms are named for the color on the walls, and some come with fireplaces or soaking tubs. One of the most outstanding features is the free, extensive breakfast made up of homemade items. This family-run inn might be in a historic Victorian home, but it also offers modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. While nice extras include a peaceful outdoor deck and appealing hammock, some rooms have very small bathrooms and are susceptible to noise.
Maine Stay Inn

Maine Stay Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Maine Stay Inn offers spacious, clean, well-decorated accommodations, both the rooms in the main house and the private cottages. There's a lot of variety in the rooms/cottages, so every traveler and family should be able to find something that works for them (including full kitchens). The big highlight here is the free daily breakfast -- the innkeepers whip up gourmet pancakes, huevos rancheros, fresh fruit, sausage, and a lot more (varies daily). They'll also accommodate special dietary requests (for gluten-free travelers, for example) if you give notice. While kids are welcome at the inn, they cannot stay at main house, nor are they allowed in the dining room during breakfast (staff will deliver breakfast to the cottages in this case).
Kennebunkport Inn

Kennebunkport Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

A cozy, three-story Victorian property that was once a privately owned mansion, the Kennebunkport Inn offers a relaxing getaway in a classic New England setting. It is a solid pick for both business and leisure travelers, particularly given its location right in Dock Square and within walking distance of restaurants, boutiques, galleries, and shops. Built in the 1890s and renovated in 2003, the inn is beautifully decorated with an elegant blend of contemporary furnishings and antiques featuring a nautical color scheme of blue, white, and red. The property has retained many of its turn-of-the-century architectural elements, which means some rooms are smaller and may have different amenities than others (e.g., fireplaces). Overall, the charming vibe, elegant decor, and thoughtful extras such as the delicious free breakfast make this inn a real gem.
Captain Jefferds Inn

Captain Jefferds Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This historic sea captain's home is now a charming, 15-room inn full of indulgent freebies and modern touches. It's in a quiet, residential area of Kennebunkport, within walking distance of the shops and restaurants downtown. Cozy rooms vary in size, decor, and amenities -- some have fireplaces, soaking tubs, and private entrances -- while all include modern perks such as free Wi-Fi, iPod docks, and flat-screen TVs. Free breakfasts here are a gourmet, sit-down affair, and more yummy snacks are available throughout the day, including at afternoon tea. Some couples seeking romance complain about the communal breakfast table, but with a no kids under 10 policy, the inn maintains an intimate and peaceful atmosphere.
The Kennebunk Inn

The Kennebunk Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Kennebunk Inn is ideal for travelers who enjoy the quirks of a historic property -- antique-type furnishings, creaky wood floors, and low ceilings, along with an alleged resident ghost. Rooms do offer free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs, but if you want modernized, uniform luxury, this eclectic inn probably isn't the place for you, as rooms are all different shapes and sizes, and some bathrooms are downright tiny. The Acadame restaurant serves renowned New England dishes created by the innkeepers, who are also professional chefs.
Mira Monte Inn

Mira Monte Inn Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 17-room Mira Monte Inn is a historic Victorian bed and breakfast a few blocks from Bar Harbor’s Main Street. The quaint Victorian interiors are rich in floral patterns, antiques, and oriental rugs, which guests might find either stuffy and dated or charming. Rooms and suites are equipped with modern amenities including flat-screen TVs and DVD players, and Wi-Fi access is free. The property sits on grassy, garden-filled land with lots of outdoor spaces for lounging, including a patio, a porch, and a terrace. There are also several common rooms indoors -- namely a library, a parlor, and a dining room.
Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel

Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The Moseley Cottage Inn and Town Motel has both elegant inn rooms and simpler motel rooms for budget travelers. The nine rooms in the inn part of the hotel have Victorian decor, and most come equipped with fireplaces and porches. The cheaper motel rooms come with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, though the tasty breakfast costs extra for motel guests (included in inn room rates). The property is conveniently situated down the street from downtown Bar Harbor’s Main Street and close to the waterfront.
